State Democratic Party memorializing leaders’ service



Jackson’s oldest daughter Patricia Hogan said it’s heartwarming to know so many people were concerned with her mother’s community contributions. The family appreciates the honor.

“It’s going to be a pleasure to attend such an affair. I’m sure she would be proud that we are able to go, but especially to be recognized in that respect and appreciated for all the work she did,” Hogan said.

Howell said what these five did for their communities can’t be summed up in a short video but taking time to honor those who paved the way is important.

“Outside of all the politics, it’s good to take a step back no matter what party you are in and be able to acknowledge leaders in your community,” Howell said. “What made them leaders wasn’t that they were only democrats it was that they were leaders to the entire community. As a young chairman, that gives me great direction to follow.”

The local and district democratic chair said Baldwin County shines within the party, as the district consistently voted that direction the last 10 years.

Having the county well represented this Saturday tells Howell a lot about current events.

“It gives me a great resolve to know we are moving forward to the 2014 state elections from a position of strength, and we plan to continue doing that,” Howell said.

There are still event tickets available. Call Howell at (478) 414-1120 if interested.
